Tune In To The Soul Station

 

Frontman. Producer. Songwriter. If forced to choose a single role, however, Jarvis would unhesitatingly select ‘soul singer’.“Through all the different genres I’ve worked in, the centre is soul. I consider myself a soul singer.” That passion and commitment is vividly showcased on the new Jarvis Church album,The Soul Station Vol. 1: The Songs Of Sam Cooke – A Tribute, released today. 

 

Reading Dream Boogie, the biography of soul music pioneer Sam Cooke, helped spark the whole Soul Station concept, Jarvis explains. “I was captivated by the story of his life as well as his music. Sam had such a strong presence, and his music was tied into the civil rights movement. I read the book while I was living in downtown Los Angeles, the same area he lived in. As I listened to his music, I just thought ‘these are great songs and I want people to hear them. I want to sing them.’ The whole idea of the Soul Station series came from that.” 

 

For “The Soul Station Vol. 1: The Songs of Sam Cooke – A Tribute”, Jarvis handpicked the top Jazz musicians and Soul singers in the nation for the “live off the floor” recording. The result is an energetic and upbeat collection of Sam Cooke classics like “A Change Is Gonna Come”, “Having A Party”, “Steal Away” and Jarvis originals “Do It Better” and “She Keeps me Up All Night”. 

 

Tune in to The Soul Station today on CBC Music and iTunes.
